If you are looking for quiet areas, especially on crowded weekends, this is the place for you. The rock is of good quality and the views from the top are outstanding.

Getting There 

From the southern Wonderland parking lot walk east on the trail/road until you get tot the remnants of an old rusted truck. Walk north up the wash. You will soon encounter a large formation on your right. This is Trifling Rock. The next formation, also on the right, is Laugh Rock.

This is the obvious crack on the left-hand side of the southwest face. It starts off the slabby ledge shared with Schwee. Scramble up a short offwidth and then move into a shallow, right trending, hand crack. This low-angle crack doesn't jam particularly well and mostly involves off-balance awkwardness as you "walk" up it....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
